It has been a typical week after the end of the season, with the media having more time to focus in fuelling transfer rumours all over the globe. With a new manager and after a dreadful season, Chelsea have become incredible candidates to be linked with every player on the planet, and we’re here to keep you up just in case one of those rumours actually happens to be true:
The young Belgian has been speaking with the media recently (shocker!!) and talking about his plans for next season, and you can tell that his agent is now Mino Raiola, when he says stuff like this.

The Belgian being cryptic has obviously fuelled exist talk, and we are for some reason, the prime target when it comes to Lukaku rumours, even though we have a striker who is very similar to him and are in dire need of enforcements elsewhere. But if you are a fan of the 23 year-old beast, you’ll be glad to know that there is still a chance that he comes back to fight for a spot- even though he left exactly because we wanted him to do that a few years ago.
Next up is Kalidou Koulibaly from the heart of Napoli’s defence. La Gazzeta dello Sport claims that we’re readying a nice 30 million bid to lure the Senegal international to SW6. The soon to be 25 year old would actually fit the bill perfectly for us, if he were to be signed. He’s very very very big, surprisingly quick, good with the ball to feet and has been crucial to Napoli’s best defensive record in years, he is basically a Kurt Zouma who is good with the ball, and with his wages reportedly less than what we pay academy players, we could easily afford to get him a pimped up deal to woo his talents.
Last, and perhaps least, is Andre Ayew who is also know as the man who tore Ivanovic to many tiny pieces at the beginning of the season. Ayew has scored against Chelsea in our very first game and went on to be Swansea’s top scorer for the season. Local media in Wales have dropped our name amongst the group of clubs he is linked with. The Ghanaian is not a bad player by any measure, but if we are to better our performance after this year, we’ve got to aim at least a little higher.
Of those three, only Koulibaly fulfils an actual need that our club has, and would make sense to invest in. So let’s hope our club moves forward with this deal, if it is on the cards, and continues addressing the tiny holes (they’re not that big) in our team, so that we would be ready for the Conte revolution.
